By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER on 20 Aug. 2013
Format: DVD
When I saw Roger Corman as the executive producer, I had to see this. The movie had his fingerprints all over it. A great cheesy production with drama, poachers, infidelity, jazz records, fat hicks, dashing leading men, and of course giant leeches. Yvette Vickers stars once again as a sleazy woman who likes to dress scantily in front of her husband's buddies and listen to loud jazz. Of course Yvette and her swamp lover Michael Emmet can't run faster than the obese Bruno VeSota can walk.
Ken Clark plays the game warden who answers his door exposing his blond hairy chest. The leeches look like men in cheap rubber suits. They keep their prey alive in a cavern and suck blood from them from time to time.

Bad acting and bad script. Great entertainment.

When I was young at 10:30 on Saturday evenings the local television station played their weekly "creature feature." The show was always a grade B horror movie and this one is within that niche. In fact, I remember watching it decades ago, the movie being memorable for the absurdity of the costumes of the man-sized leeches.
The setting is the swamps of the southeastern United States and many of the main characters are clad in bib overalls and talk like local country folk. As a recent political commercial demonstrated, there is nothing more phony sounding than professional actors trying to portray simple local folk. Their dialogue sounds artificial and some of the situations are right out of the book of clichés to be avoided. There is a young southern woman that is straying from her overweight husband and she shows as much female skin as was tolerated when the movie was made. The hero of the story is the local game warden, a man of honor that upholds the law, even when it is contrary to his love interests. He also shows as much skin as the law allowed at the time.
For reasons that are logically challenged, the giant leeches are suddenly hungry for human blood and begin attacking humans. However, they are also clever enough to capture some so that they can engage in regular mealtimes. With the help of dogs and volunteers, the game warden is able to track the leeches to their local swamp and rescue the last remaining prisoner of the leeches, quite naturally the voluptuous woman.
As is expected in movies like this, the acting is poor and the quality of the story even worse. However, back when they were made the entertainment expectations were much lower, so they were suitable for the late-night "watched in bed" movie on television. Now, these movies are largely watched for nostalgia and to hoot at when the monster makes an appearance. That type of fun is timeless.

This Movie is one of the B Movies that i don't find Funny! Sure the Movie is really old and very low budget, with not so great effects! But unlike other B Movies this one is quite Creepy, and could be a Brilliant modern remake if you had the right Director! The Creature idea for this Movie is Eerie, Leeches, Swaps and Mutation, all good for a modern Horror if done Correct. In fact if i was to remake this Movie, all i would change in the Plot would be the Radiation Mutation, for a Biological/Genetic one instead, id even keep the Characters pretty much the same to. Love this old B Movie for the idea and the Creatures, although they are very dated yet still Eerie & Creepy! Love them and the Movie!!! Only down side is the Picture quality and Sound are very poor, but ELSTREE HILL never make any effort when releasing old Classics onto DVD, SHAME ON YOU!!! YOU TW*TS!!!!
